A fresh breeze brings out the water sports enthusiasts

In a fresh southerly breeze, dozens of kite surfers demonstrated their skills off Weymouth Beach yesterday (6th November 2020). While a little challenging for we armchair sportspeople, the fine conditions yesterday enabled the more active among us to partake in excellent lockdown exercise.

The sport has been popular for some time locally, with a number of clubs and training academies (Weymouth and Portland Kite Surfing Club, Yumping.UK, Paracademyextreme.co.uk and Kiteaddicts, among others). For us spectators, it provides plenty of entertainment, especially during lockdown. We spotted some surfers soaring many yards into the sky. (But were not very successful capturing these moments in our video – sorry!)
